Arsenal 5-0 Aston Villa – player ratings

159

I like it when we win 5-0. It doesn’t happen often enough for my liking, but that sounds suspiciously like a complaint and today is not a day for those.

Here’s how the players rated.

Not overly tested by Villa, but made two very good saves to keep his 4th clean sheet in a row, and his handling was assured throughout.

He's getting better and better. It's still early in his career, but he's making genuine progress. Solid defensively and a wonderfully precise finish for his first Arsenal goal.

Did all the things you'd want a Mert to do. And got creative in the left wing position, making a chance for Akpom!

Solid and unspectacular and that's just ace.

The Spaniard is in excellent form at the moment and thoroughly deserves his place in the team. Really good today.

No fuss, no bother, the Coq got it up today.

Again his overall play wasn't great, fluffed his lines a couple of times, but the move and movement for his goal was superb. As was the finish.

Got his second goal in two games, contributed well overall, withstood some physical challenges, and made Giroud's goal with the most delicious flick you'll see all season.

Not quite at his best yet but worked really hard and was denied a goal by a good Guzan save.

Another fine display from the twinkle-toed genius. Not his most convincing penalty of the season but it went in and that's all that counts.

The big man is doing it week after week now, possibly in the best form of his Arsenal career. Tidy finish for the goal and he returned the favour to Ozil with an assist for his.

The youngster won a penalty and could have scored a couple after pretty much everyone tried to set him up for a goal.

Did more at the top end of the pitch than defensively, one great pass into the channel for Bellerin stood out.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 that we're not talking about Anthony Taylor who is still a shit ref.
